Sen. Kamala Harris, who clashed with Joe Biden on the debate stage earlier in the Democratic primary race, endorsed the former vice president on Sunday.
The California Democrat said in a Twitter post that Biden “has served our country with dignity and we need him now more than ever. I will do everything in my power to help elect him the next President of the United States.”
“I have decided that I am, with great enthusiasm, going to endorse Joe Biden for president of the United States,” Harris said in a video directed at her supporters, which was posted with the tweet. “I believe in Joe. I really believe in him and I have known him for a long time. One of the things that we need right now, is we need a leader who really does care about the people and who can therefore unify the people. And I believe Joe can do that.

“I am supporting Joe because I believe that he is a man who has lived his life with great dignity. He is a public servant who has always worked for the best of who we are as a nation. And we need that right now. There is so much at stake in this election, guys. So, join me in supporting Joe, and let’s get this done.”
